If India lose, then their progression to the final will depend on the outcome of the Sri Lanka-Bangladesh game and, potentially, net run rate.

Mushfiqur completed his half century off the 42nd ball he faced, and ended up eventually on 72 not out off 55 balls. The decision to promote Liton Das up the other also worked well as he and Tamim Iqbal set the tone scoring 74 runs in the powerplay. The win broke a four-match losing streak in T20 global matches. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh now face off in a virtual semi-final on Friday.

Indian fans will be able to watch the match live on DSport channel.

The fifth match in the triangular series will not be an easy one for either of the team, as both the team are now in a winning mode in the tournament. "We believe in our ability". We have taken a step in the right direction. "Now we want to move on with the positives towards the next match". India, with two wins, are topping the table whereas Bangladesh, who suffered a defeat against India and beat Sri Lanka empathically on Saturday are at the bottom. Men in Blue will play on final if they had victory over Bangladesh in Colombo on March 14, Wednesday.

In the last match, it was a 68-run stand between Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey which took the visitors home.

Team India will battle against the Bangladesh cricket team in the fifth Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) on March 14, 2018.

Rohit Sharma plays a shot during his knock of 89. Raina has been making 20s and Pandey stays steady in the middle order. Vijay Shankar, 10. Jaydev Unadkat, 11. Tamim Iqbal, who had just begun to free his arms, was out soon after, also to Sundar, who slipped a delivery into leg stump, as Tamim shuffled to off and tried to shovel it over his shoulder. Shikhar Dhawan, 3. Suresh Raina, 4. Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), 5. Mahmudullah (captain), 6. Sabbir Rahman or Ariful Haque, 7. Taskin Ahmed or Abu Jayed, 10. Mehedi Hasan, 8. Nazmul Islam, 9. Skipper Rohit, who was out of form for quite a long time, returned to the form and slammed his 13th fifty (off 42 balls).

After a rare setback in the opening game of the Nidahas Trophy, this new look Team India seem to have brought back the swagger that has seen them reach the pinnacle of the ODI and Test rankings and No. 3 in T20Is.
